Quotes[edit]

When I was a kid, my dream was to be a farmer and marry Charlie Brown. I wanted to rescue him and make him happy.
  • Whatever you've accomplished there's always more to experience.
    • As quoted in "Genius at Work" in People magazine, Vol. 43 No. 9 (6 March 1995)
  • I just tend to admire people who go for what they believe in, like David Lynch for example, and just say what goes through their heads, and are not afraid of people not accepting them. I have no respect for people who deliberately try to be weird to attract attention, but if that's who you honestly are, you shouldn't try to "normalize yourself". It's a fine line.
    • AOL Live (1996)
  • I'm so much happier now that people seem to find better things to ask me about than all my "accomplishments" from when I was a little girl. I feel like that was so long ago, and so irrelevant to who I am now, that I am glad the focus isn't really on that as much any more.
    • AOL Live (1996)
  • When I was a kid, my dream was to be a farmer and marry Charlie Brown. I wanted to rescue him and make him happy. Besides, he was always lusting after "the little redhead girl".
    • Seventeen (1996)
  • Everything was okay, as long as I could dream. Its amazing, really, the difference between having a dream and not having any left that can come true. It's the difference between living and dying.

Filmcritic.com interview (2000)[edit]

I love psychology. I like listening to or talking about any personality traits that are unusual
Witt's Beginning: Alicia Witt Struts Her Stuff in the New Comedy "Playing Mona Lisa" by Christopher Null (17 October 2000)
  • I don't consider myself to be a quote-unquote "good girl". I'm not prim and proper and polite. I'm very honest, and I love talking about sex, or people's deviances. I love psychology. I like listening to or talking about any personality traits that are unusual. That's what I like about acting.

  • I don't know that I'm actually bipolar, but I definitely have huge mood swings, and I'm definitely passionate about the way I feel. I'm not really lukewarm one way or the other.
  • I like to play any character that allows me the freedom to explore it and teach the audience something they didn't know, and show them a journey they identify with ... or be inspired, or moved. Anything that touches someone's heart is important for me.

Alicia Witt (2009)[edit]

The night was long and dark and just
Another dagger to my trust.
Go tell them all it's all my fault
You'll tell them I was crazy.
And anyway it's over now
Nothing left to say.
Debut EP on iTunes
  • I'm bruised again,
    I wear it well,
    The self-inflicted tale they tell.

    I singed my hair,
    I broke my nails.
    You'd love me then,
    If all else failed.
    The night was long and dark and just
    Another dagger to my trust.
    I thrust it in until I bleed
    I wiped my point for you to see.

    And anyway,
    It's over now.
    Nothing left to say.

    I don't know why,
    I don't care how,
    It's over anyway.
    It's broken in pieces .
    You've got the space you needed.
    Too late to try,
    Just say good-bye
    It's over anyway.

  • My so-called faith went up in flames
    Till I believed in all your lies,
    For the life of me I don't know why.
    They got you wrong,
    You're not that strong.
    I don't belong here!
    • "Anyway"
  • You'll say I'm self-destructive —
    I constructed all this tragedy.
    Go tell them all it's all my fault
    You'll tell them I was crazy.
    And anyway it's over now
    Nothing left to say.
    • "Anyway"

Quotes about Witt[edit]

I sometimes get a funny feeling, that Alicia Witt has to shut down half her cerebellum to have a conversation with me. ~ Chuck Lorre
Alphabetized by author
  • Look at the girl I did Urban Legends with, my last big hit, in '98. One of the girls in that, Alicia Witt — who was on the TV series, Cybill — she without a doubt did the best work on television last year when she guest-starred on the most difficult show to guest star on, which was The Sopranos. She played a non-Italian mafia type on The Sopranos — she was the best thing in the hour. To me, this girl is outstanding. This girl has movie star potential. Now, she was in Cecil B. Demented. I'm just amazed she's not a much bigger star already — not out of any disappointment in Alicia. But I just can't believe the town hasn't just sort of like scooped her up and made her as much of an "It Girl" as, for instance, Goldie Hawn's daughter or Gwyneth Paltrow, because I think this girl is really — and she's also genuinely funny in a wonderful, sexy, screwball comedy way.

    • Chuck Lorre creator of the sitcom Cybill, as quoted in "Genius at Work" by Tom Gliatto in People magazine, Vol. 43 No. 9 (6 March 1995)
  • She did have an extraordinary childhood. At the age of 1 month, she says, she was talking. At 6 months, she was reading. At the age of 4, she performed a scene from Romeo and Juliet on the Today show and wrote short stories based on the Peanuts characters. "In my fantasy I was always the savior. I would come to 'Peanuts' land and save everybody. Charlie Brown would fall madly in love with me. Peppermint Patty was so jealous."
    • Mark Schwed, in "Cybill-ing Revelry" in TV Guide (27 July 1996)
